We go reservations for a specific time to allow us to visit all the floors of this old palazzo. We were in a group with a guide doing Italian and French but not English. You do not need a guide really. This building that is older than most allows you to get a glimpse of life in the 12-1300s. You... More

Visit the Museo Della Casa Fiorentina Antica housed in the Palazzo. This is a great example of the splendor in which the very rich lived. The structure has had multiple changes and restorations, but remains much the way it would have originally been and dates back to the 14th century.

Whilst walking around the centre of Florence we came across this beautifully restored renaissance palace, worth a visit. There are a number of beautiful rooms with antique furnishings, all with clear descriptions (also in English), and not at all busy. It is a shame that it is let down by the lack of information supplied when buying a ticket: the... More

Yes, it's a big house and worth visiting. Rebuild from ruin now is beautiful. Open only until 13:50 if you go there without reservation you can see only ground and first floor. Maybe not enough for such a big building. The upper floors are with the local guide at certain hours. Anyway it's good to see everyday life of the... More

One of the few remaining home that are still in their original condition Although there is little period furniture (900 years) the home has been well maintained and is very unique in its construction. There are secrets everywhere. It was a home with a palazzo entrance but well protected. With very large rooms it's construction was similar to that of... More

We have visited Florence on many occasions, but only discovered this gem after an Italian friend mentioned that there had been a renovation. Tickets are cheap, but opening times somewhat erratic; to visit all floors it is best to arrive in the mid morning. When you get to see all floors the climb up the stairs is well worth the... More

This museum is a beautifully restored Renaissance castle housing furniture, pottery and household items as well as frescoes, art, wallpaper, triptychs and other decorative pieces from the 15th and 16th century. The hours of opening of the museum are limited, running from 8:15 or 8:30 to 1:50 and you have to make an appointment to see the upper 2 stories,... More

I had studied in Florence years ago, and have been able to return to visit a number of times. I stopped in for just two days, and decided to see places I hadn't yet visited. I'm so glad I got to Palazzo Davanzati. You can see some rooms on your own, but need to be accompanied by a guide to... More

Payed 3€ entrance fee for seeing only 1 floor. Got in there at 12:02 and they told me that the upper floors can only be visited until 12:00. Completely unreasonable!! There is no reason to just close 2/3 of the museum after 12. If you don't want people to visit the place then don't run a museum!! Also the staff... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
